The hostess noticed that there was water on the floor near our table and said to be careful and they would take care of it. This was not addressed and one of my kids slipped on the water coming back from the restroom. We again let the server know that there was water on the floor and it needed to... More

Very friendly staff & very good food. Can be a bit on the expensive side depending on what you order.

Good food and staff was great! My guess would be that you should always expect a wait considering it's in the Mall of America and right next to Crayola store. Of course it was packed with families on the day we went and the wait to be seated was an hour and half. We noticed empty seats at the bar... More

The food was not bad, the atmosphere was better. It's a neat place. With that being said, go there knowing you're going to spend an extra $5 on each meal than you would for the same meal somewhere else.

while shopping at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, we came across the Rainforest Cafe. So glad to see it. We enjoyed the most wonderful lunch and glass of wine. This is the restaurant that takes a person on a mini vacation - with all the decor, you feel like you are in a rainforest, for sure. Great food!

We have eaten here several times and always get the pot roast. It is yummy! The atmosphere is fun for kids. It is expensive and the waiting area is always a mess, but we have the club and usually don't have much of a wait.

I was just diagnosed with celiac disease. The manager came out to talk to me about my special diet. I did not get sick from the sandwich they gave me and the meal was delicious! The thunderstorms were a plus in the atmosphere department!

My husband and I were there at the MOA and wanted to eat somewhere "different". We went by this place and I knew this was the place! We didn't have long of a wait and there's plenty to look at while you do wait. The food was good, great portions! My husband had the chicken parm and I had a... More

We were seated quickly. If you have kids, ask for a seat inside the forest, as there are periodic "thunderstorms", during which the animated animals carry on. Our server was very thoughtful, arriving with a fresh ketchup bottle, when mine appeared to be empty, before I could even look up. He was friendly and helpful. The Rainforest Burger was superb!...

First I want to say that our waiter was great but I have to say the entire rest of the staff was terrible. Two women watched us stand there waiting for someone to seat us but would not either come over to help us or get the person that was supposed to be there. Just stood there talking to each... More
